Windows 7: How to edit rating with video files?

How to edit rating with video files?

I have a lot of folders with videos that I would like to be able to sort by rating. I know you can change the star rating with pictures and mp3s, but can you with videos or folders? Or can I make a custom sort option?

You can change the rating of a video by pulling up the status area and clicking the stars.

Or of course you can do it in WMP in detail mode.

You can sort and group by rating by using the more... option and checking Rating.

I forgot that MS always gives you at least three ways to do something.

I just wanted to add a little to it, and somehow it posted that little bit and then I had to go back and put in what I wanted to do.

Thanks for the replies, but I have tried both of your methods and for some reason, I can't edit anything in the "Details" section at all. Does Windows only let you edit certain types of video files?
I also know of the sorting options, but since I can't edit the stars, there is no point in sorting by rating so I figured if I could make a custom sorting option, I could make a pseudo rating that way.

Most of my videos are .mkv files by the way.

I just tried it on a .mp4 video and it let me rate them...so why can't I rate any type of video?

Well I'm not really an expert on this but on my system I only have MP4, WMV, MOV and MPG. I don't seem to be able to edit MPG but the others are OK.

Just converted a video to MKV. can't edit that either. In fact can't play it in WMP. I don't think MKV is natively supported by windows.

Well there may be third party tag editors out there that you could use but not all containers support all fields. You might want to try googling MKV tag editor.

Video Performance Rating w/ SLI Bridge
Okay, now I know if you bridge two cards together with the SLI bridge, it will not double your graphics capabilities, but if my windows rating is 4.8 due to my graphics card, and if I bridge them, how much of a bump might I see? FYI, I have an Nvidia GeForce 8500 GT... nothing fancy, but it does...
